Things to Keep in Mind Before Planning Your Beach Wedding

1) Accessibility to the beach

You may certainly fall in love with some beach locations at a glance, but remember it’s not just going to be the two of you. The beach must be convenient to reach from the main road for all those invited for the big day. Some elderly cannot walk for miles on the sandy beaches. So check if there is any nearby parking as you don’t want to miss being blessed by them. 

Not only the guests, but the decorators, food organizers will all have to face inconvenience if the location is too much in the interiors. If the state law requires a permit, make sure you have cleared the legalities well in advance.

2) Keep the weather in mind

Even the best plans can be ruined simply if the weather is nasty. The tides, sun, and winds are crucial factors for planning a destination beach wedding. Tides crashing against the shore can add romantic rhythm to your wedding, but they can take a minute to spoil the charm. Your vows can drown in the noise without a professional sound system. The water can take minutes to creep in, drowning the venue if the wedding location is too close to the water. The scorching sun can take a toll on the elderly and children. 

To avoid the scorching heat and pouring crowds at the beach, walk down the aisle either in the morning or sunset. If this is not possible, keep the guests cool by covering the seating area with a canopy. You may be glistening in the shade, but your guests will die in the heat. Thorough research can help to save your dream day from being ruined.

Despite all the planning it is difficult to predict Mother Nature. Have a backup plan ready in case the nature elements work against your will. Book a tent at the beach where you can run when Mother Nature does not cooperate.

4) Choice of food 

Choice of food

Some food items can be difficult to manage in the scorching heat. Food storage is a hassle when it comes to beach weddings. You cannot pick any food item that can melt or get spoilt quickly. Think of your buttercream cake without refrigeration? Since the beach rentals at the Mayan Princess are just a walk from the beach, you can choose to get married at the beach and then serve the food at the majestic resort. 

Make sure to visit the place in advance to avoid any last-minute hitch.

5) Wedding attire

You want to look the best on your D-day; the most important day of your life. You might have envisioned this a thousand times in your dreams. We have some tips here for wedding attires that can give you the least stress and the utmost pleasure:

6) Wedding decor

You cannot be fussy when it comes to choosing decor for beach weddings. The beauty of the waters is so mesmerizing you can sober down on the wedding decorations. The prime concern is that it has to be wind friendly. Use sturdy decor so that it will stand up against the winds and sun. Hold downlighter items like table cloths with something heavier or secure them with springs. Instead of using towering candles and super lavish flowers, choose decor elements like seashells, lanterns, anchors, etc that complement the seaside setting.
